Our guests are charmed by a stay at the Annex. A intimate, little house which is perfect for a couple - with or without children. The view to the fjord will calm and relax you, the house itself has its surprizes - tiny and rough - yet comfortable.
The Annex in Hanevik offers a perfect base for your exploration of Bergen and the fjords. A stay in one of our two houses will add a pleasant memory to your holiday. On the seafront in Askøy is our "tun" - a yard surrounded by five traditional Norwegian west-coast houses. We are located half an hour by car (27km) from the buzz of Bergen. Enjoy a calm atmosphere in nice and quiet surroundings. The woods can offer beautiful walks. With our rowing boat you can enjoy the surroundings from the sea or you can make a BBQ in the garden.
Bergen has a lot of attractions and it is also possible to use our place as base for visiting the more spectacular fjords north and east of Bergen on day-trips.
Askøy is also called "little Norway" for having very changing landscapes, it is rocky and barren in the north-west and green and fertile in the south-east. It has its own attractions, such as nice walks in the woods, lakes and small mountains. There is golf-course on a beautiful neighboring island called Herdla. There are bridges connecting our islands to the mainland.
Our place is in a rural area, so the closest food-stores are 5 km away.
The Annex has two beds in the loft and a double sofa bed in the living room.
There are 20 buses pr day, leaving from the main bus-station in town, next to the railway-station - where the bus from the airport also stops. The bus takes about one hour.
During the low season we give special prices, depending on the length of the stay .
We have two houses for rent, the other one is listed as "Peaceful by the sea next to Bergen". Please make sure that you book the one you want.
Behind the Annex is a small garden at your disposal. There is a table and chairs for four. Enjoy you outdoor meal when the weather permits!

We can provide tips and recommendations for trips in the area.
I think we can call ourself well travelled, but still very happy to have found a basecamp at Hanevik, just outside Bergen. My husbond and I found this place 30 years ago and decided to give the countryliving a try. We´ve spent years at reconstructing and remaking these five houses and the boat-house, It´s become a lifestyle. We live in one of the houses our selves and rent two of them on short time contracts, you find both of them here on AirB&B. We both work in the town center and really enjoy the combination of busy town life and quiet countryside.
